How To Date After Divorce

By: Elizabeth Marie |

You’ve shut the door on the past, taken time to heal and you’re ready to give love another shot. The only thing is, things have changed since you were last playing the dating game, and maybe you’re unsure of where to start. We’re here to help!

Don’t Compare The Past With The Present-After getting out of a long term relationship, it’s easy to compare every new person we meet with our ex, but try your best not to do this.  Remember that he or she is your EX for a reason, and although they represent comfort to you, sometimes breaking out of the box and trying something or someone new yields the best results.  Don’t limit yourself to what you’ve had in the past!

Figure Out What You’re Looking For-Maybe you aren’t ready for another super serious relationship, but you still would like to find a companion to spend time with.  Or perhaps you’re looking to give marriage another try.  By figuring out what you truly want, you’ll be able to find the best ways to get it.  There are a ton of options when it comes to dating, and it can be overwhelming…it’s best to attack with a plan!

Try Something New-Get dressed up and hit the town with your friends, and chat up the sexy bartender…even if he is your son’s age!  Sign up for an online dating site and see what happens.  Things have changed and you’ve got to keep changing and evolving with them!
